Slated for a spring 2015 completion, the 10 upscale townhomes now known as The Water Tower Stacks promise to deliver "historic modern" architecture to the Old Fourth Ward — judging by the new rendering, that oxymoronic description means lots of brick, dark metallic finishes and right angles. Located in the triangle formed by Irwin Street, Auburn Avenue and Randolph Street, the aptly named development is right next to Old Water Tower Park (and water tower). It's also within walking distance of Krog Street Market, the Beltline and Historic Fourth Ward Park. Each unit, built by Epic Development, will feature four stories and a "unique rooftop finished room and open air space with incredible views of downtown Atlanta." Like pretty much everything going up in the O4W these days, it ain't gonna be cheap.
The project's website indicates that the townhomes — eight attached and two detached, which range from 2,000 to 3,400 square feet — will be priced from the $500Ks to the $700Ks. They'll reportedly feature open floor plans, hardwood floors, "modern" kitchens and bathrooms and an optional private elevator. Alas, no further intel on (or images of) the interiors just yet. Presales will start in the vaguely worded "coming months" and will, presumably, not last long. Just another boon to property values in what may be ATL's hottest neighborhood.
